Am I going to bring down the plane if I listen to my iPod during takeoff and landing?

I'm familiar with the standard flight attendant instructions to remove and stow all electronic devices to avoid "interference."
At the risk of seeming overly dense, how could my iPod interfere with anything? And if it does cause interference, why is it okay to listen to it during the flight itself, but not during takeoff or landing? I remember during the 80s getting the same warning about my cassette player, which again, didn't seem to make much sense.
Am I dooming my fellow passengers if I keep my iPod playing during takeoff and landing?
